Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-78) Authentication infrastructure for Hive
Date Tue, 14 Apr 2009 13:34:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-78?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12698771#action_12698771

Edward Capriolo commented on HIVE-78:

My last comment is a blocker in my mind. How can we implement complex access controls at the
Hive level when we have basic file ownership issues at the file level? Daemons like HiveService
and HiveWebInterface will have to run as supergroup or a hive group? How is this  this effect
the CLI that will run as the individual user? 

These are not as much Hive issues as they are environment/setup issues, but I do not want
to assume my environment is the target environment. Will we be assuming users are members
of a 'hive' posix group or that all the files in the warehouse are owned by user 'Hive' group
'Hive'? I wanted to get others opinion on this.
